Markham is in CONTROL-RED Zone with New Restrictions

The Government of Ontario recently released its new COVID-19 response framework to ensure public health measures are targeted, incremental and responsive, while keeping schools and businesses open, maintaining health system capacity and protecting vulnerable people.

In response to the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases, the City of Markham is in CONTROL-RED Zone. As of Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM, the City’s private gathering limits will be as follows:

  • Indoor gatherings: 5 people maximum
  • Outdoor gatherings: 25 people maximum

Individuals should limit travel to essential trips only and limit close contact to members of their household only. Individuals who live alone, including seniors, may consider having exclusive, close contact with one other household.
